Hitman’s Elusive Target Event #18 Commences

On this lovely Friday the 13th of the not-so-lovely year of 2017, comes Hitman’s next installment in it’s never ending Elusive Target event saga.

For all owners of Episode 5: Colorado and Season Pass holders, the latest timed assassination event will have Agent 47 and players traveling to the good ol’ U. S. of A. in search of a man by the name of Richard M. Foreman.

This master impersonator, actor and all around human “Chameleon” has been up to no good recently, impersonating the wealthy Charles Vanderblathe, withdrawing hundreds of millions from various Vanderblathe accounts in just under a month. Ouch, that’s got to hurt the ol’ wallet a bit.

Unlike most Elusive Target events, today’s 168 hour long challenge has a special contract condition that must be met in order to complete your task and rewarded for eliminating the target. One must finish off Mr. Foreman in an accidental manner, such as drowning or falling off a balcony.

Explosions on the other hand, lead to an instant ‘Mission Fail’, so put that stick of TNT you got for Christmas away for another day. Locate your target, retrieve his documents, then spring the trap and get the hell out of Colorado. Sounds simple enough… good luck agents.


Official Press Release

The eighteenth Elusive Target, The Chameleon, is now live in Colorado across all platforms. A briefing video is available online and in-game to help players determine the approximate location of the target. Players will need to own HITMAN Episode 5: Colorado in order to access this content.

Elusive Target 18 has two objectives AND special contract conditions apply:

  • Objectives: (1) Eliminate Richard M. Foreman & (2) Retrieve Documents.
  • Special Contract Conditions: Eliminate the target with a non-explosion accident.

*The Elusive Target is available for 168 hours.

Elusive Targets are part of the live content being published for HITMAN in-between episodes and represent a new game mode debuting for players. They are not going to be easy but if you can prove yourself, you’ll earn in-game rewards for completing Elusive Target contracts.

  • The Elusive Targets are specially crafted, unique targets, which come with particular rules:
  • An Elusive Target is a once in a lifetime experience
  • They are available for a limited time only in game
  • Intel on the target will be limited
  • They will not appear in instinct mode, or the mini map and their locations will not be revealed to you – you’ll have to go and find them
  • Plan accordingly before you engage your target
  • Your target can only die once
  • If you die during the mission, that’s it
  • When the time runs out, they are gone for good
  • If you fail, there are no second chances

Don’t miss out.

Start time:    Friday, January 13th 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET
